Stretch & sweep/sweeping membranes: experiences? When would you do it? - Page 2

post #21 of 23

I have an appointment Thursday at 40+6 (if I don't have baby first), and will probably be offered the sweep then.  I probably will decline, partly because I'm Group B strep positive, and the potential for infection makes me nervous (even though I can't find good evidence either way if that's a significant risk).  If I haven't had the baby by next week though, as I'll be approaching 42 at that point, I'll probably do it then.

Well congrats on the baby!

Just in case anyone is still hanging out waiting for a baby....

I can't believe I did  this, but I asked for a sweep and had one done at 39 weeks. I was having prelabour stuff within 24 hours, and babe was born less than 36 hours later. We did accupressure too, but I think the sweep put me over the edge. It CAN work. :)
